: absolutely not. i will see not see medicare vow chirrized. i know, this plan is what the paul ryan has bet his career on. but it would immediately have negative impacts on our seniors. i think protecting medicare is absolutely essential. it's why i cut sub subsidizes to insurance companies so we can put more money back in to medicare. not what you hear from my opponent. we took medicare saving from the insurance company and piled it in to filling the doughnut hole and put it in to preventive programs and extending the life of medicare. i won't see the program vowtured. my father had a tough year. unfortunately he's used medicare a lot this year. it was there for him. it was there for my mother when she had to taken over many of the family duties he had previously filled. no, i won't support that plan. >> moderator: heather? wilson: medicare is important now and in the future. we're to do things to save it. i actually don't like this part of congressman ryan's voucherrized approach. i support medicare advantage. that's a program here in new mexico four out of ten seniors choose to have. i w

, if you. gill: it's okay. it's easy to say he wouldn't cut pell grants, as paul ryan pell grants, as paul ryan monster, but it's important to understand where these two campaigns come from. this is an insider against an outsider. mr. davis recently had a fundraiser in missouri. the u.s. chamber of commerce, they are helping him and they are not doing it out of the goodness of their heart. they are doing it because they expect something in return they get washington dc. that would be to stand up for a budget such as paul ryan proposes. it increases pain and difficulty for college kids. i think college needs to be more accessible and we need to make it more portable. as i indicated, i think the programs should be readily available to young people such as yourself. being that 75% of my funding comes from people just like you, ordinary citizens, an average donation of $61, the proof is in the pudding. that is why i'm going to washington, to work on your behalf to and make sure you can get college and graduate and hopefully work to create jobs again within this economy. so that we don't have t
one of the reason i voted against the paul ryan budget. it changes in medicare i didn't believe was in the best interest of montana senior. my best interest i will always vote, i never vote to prizetize social security or medicare. i believe that they are sound and i believe that they are for for anybody on it now or going to be on it soon. >> moderator: senator tester. tester: in twine the record is clear. you voted to make it to a voucher system. congressman ryan bill. you have been on the platform before. talk abouting what you will never do. for instance, a few years back you talked about never taking pay raise. i believe last count probably five, so can we believe you this time? are you going continue do things like vote to make medicare in to a voucher system. rehberg: it's obviously you'll do anything to keep your job. [inaudible] i have never voted for a pay raise. you have. you voted for a pay raise just several months ago in the united states senate. and i never have voted for a pay raise. and i don't prospective the privatization of social security for anybody on it o
. i would like to see it. i want to score it, but at least it's a plan. paul ryan's got a plan, tommy tompson's got a plan. we waited for months and years for barack obama to have a plan, tammy baldwin to have a plan. they say we have no plan, just stand by and play a harp while rome burns and see medicare collapse. that's not a smart plan. >> moderator: congresswoman? baldwin: first of all, we know something about the brand new plan on medicare, and that is that health costs in the federal employee health benefit program are increasing at a rate of 40% faster than traditional medicare. that gives you a sense. it's not a full score from cbo, but that ising? we know with the track record. it's not saving us money. it shifts a burden to seniors. secondly, this idea that he never sported the voucher program. he ran ads in the pry -- primary saying i'm the 51st vote to pass the ryan budget that contains this plan. in the republican state convention last summer, he stood on the stage and talked about the support for this map. you know, the tea party group, who better than me to end medicar
